Plan ahead for winter adventures!
Sooner or later, the snow will be sticking around on the North Shore! Keep in mind that not all of the SHT parking lots are plowed and a couple of the roads leading to our trailheads (Jackson Lake Road and Otter Lake Road) are usually not plowed at all. Check the Conditions Page for updated information about plowed lots.
Here is a list of the Superior Hiking Trail trailhead parking lots that are typically plowed:
Jay Cooke State Park Headquarters
Munger Trail at 123rd Ave West
Spirit Mountain Lower Chalet
Spirit Mountain Upper Chalet
Hartley Nature Center
North Shore Section:
Fox Farm Road
Lake County Demonstration Forest
Gooseberry Falls State Park
Split Rock River Wayside
Split Rock State Park
Silver Bay – Penn Boulevard
Tettegouche State Park
Finland Recreation Center
Crosby-Manitou State Park
Caribou River Wayside (possibly)
Temperance River Wayside
Lutsen Mountains Recreation Area
Caribou Trail (possibly)
Cascade River State Park
Bally Creek Road (northern parking lot only)
Pincushion Mountain at Grand Marais (but no hiking on ski trail)
Kadunce River Wayside
Judge Magney State Park (the big parking lot isn’t plowed but there is room to park cars right by the contact station)
Occasionally a volunteer will plow a lot that is not listed here. When we find out about these acts of snow-plowing kindness, we’ll update the Conditions Page.
Have fun out there and stay safe!
